The 10 Best Passover Gifts for 2021
Getting ready for Passover (or Pesach in Hebrew) is never an easy task. Between going to the supermarket to load up on matzah and macaroons, choosing the right Hagaddah or perfect Afikomen Bag to use at the Seder, and planning eight days' worth of unleavened meals, preparing for Passover can be stressful!
As if that wasn’t enough, Passover 2021 brings its own unique challenges for a few reasons. This year, the first night of Passover begins on the evening of March 27, just after Shabbat ends — meaning many hosts will have more prep to do and less time to do it. And of course, due to the ongoing pandemic, many of us will not be gathering with the friends and family that make the holiday so special.
While you might not be crowding around the same physical table as your loved ones this year, making sure your friends and family have everything they need to celebrate Passover in their own homes is the perfect way to stay connected from afar.
Maybe it’s your child’s first Passover away from home, and you want to make sure they have a suitable Seder plate. Maybe you want to send your friends across the country a bottle of Kosher for Passover wine so they know you’re thinking of them. Maybe you’re missing Jerusalem and want to treat yourself by adding a piece of the Holy Land to your own home.
No matter who you’re shopping for, we have something for everyone! While our full selection of Passover gifts includes an array of options, we have compiled our top 10 picks into this handy guide to narrow your search for the perfect Passover 2021 gifts.
